Estate Jewelry

Rings are so fun to collect! This a great place to incorporate some go-to estate jewelry. You can create a ring stack that’s uniquely you with elements of old and new. And pretty much every occasion is a perfect reason to add to your stack! Need a birthday gift for yourself? Did you get a promotion, or have a child or grandchild? Hey, we should get a present when we become a grandma, too! It’s a big deal. Anniversaries are another great reason to add to your collection, and never forget the much loved  ‘just because gift’. (That one might be our favorite.)

This first ring stack shows off all vintage rings and the second stack incorporates a sapphire estate ring with new diamond bands mixed in. See how fun they are!? Start creating your look now! Shop any of our locations to start your estate jewelry collection.

Custom Jewelry

With custom jewelry, you can pretty much do whatever you want! Check out Pinterest for some ideas to get started. Then bring your ideas to us so we can help create something that’s uniquely you, inspired by your findings! The inspiration you find doesn’t have to be just jewelry, either. For instance, we created this Black Swan necklace for the Carolina Ballet based on their production of Swan Lake. Whatever you love or inspires you, bring it to us! We’ll help bring it to life! Find out more about the custom jewelry process, here.
